The war of the doomed : Jewish armed resistance in Poland, 1942-1944 by Shmuel Krakowski( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 1984 in English and Hebrew and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the Jewish partisan movement in the forests, resistance in the ghettos and concentration camps, and the Warsaw ghetto uprising, based on testimonies of nearly 500 survivors. Since the policy of the main body of the Polish resistance, the Home Army (AK), was to postpone armed resistance, the Jews, forced by the deportations to act, received help only from Red Army escapees and from the Polish Workers' Party. They were thus labelled "communist gangs" and "plunderers" and some AK units attacked and killed Jewish partisans. The right-wing antisemitic NSZ (Narodowe Siły Zbrojne) units also wiped out any Jewish fighters they found. Describes the betrayal of Jews to the Germans by Polish peasants and the Auxiliary Police. Notes that many Jews posed as Aryans because of antisemitism. Concludes that neither the Home Army nor the government-in-exile took an interest in Jewish resistance
Unequal victims : Poles and Jews during World War Two by Israel Gutman( Book )

11 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denies the claim that Poles and Jews in occupied Poland were in a similar position and that, as a result, the Poles were unable to help the persecuted Jews. Their failure to help the Jews arose from prewar antisemitic attitudes. Many Poles benefited from Jewish abandoned property and the elimination of economic competition, and public satisfaction with German policy was reported by the Delegate's office, the representative of the exiled Polish government. Neither the office nor the Polish underground leadership included Jewish representatives. The Sikorski government in London, more sensitive to Western opinion, included two Jewish representatives and made declarations condemning the mass murder of Jews but gave little material help, partly due to pressure by extremist right-wing groups. Other chapters discuss the Council for Aid to Jews (Żegota), antisemitism in the Anders Army, and antisemitism and pogroms after the liberation
The Einsatzgruppen reports : selections from the dispatches of the Nazi Death Squads' campaign against the Jews July 1941-January 1943 by Holocaust Library( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The excerpts refer to the mass murder of Jews in the Nazi-occupied territories of the USSR, including the Baltic republics, the Polish areas occupied by Soviet troops in 1939, and Bukovina and Bessarabia, partially under Romanian military rule. Contains, also, information on Jewish partisans and on the participation of the local police and authorities in the annihilation of the Jewish populations. The Einsatzgruppen reports were discovered by the U.S. Army in the Gestapo headquarters in Berlin after the war, and used in the Einsatzgruppen Trial (1947-48) at Nuremberg

Polish-Jewish relations during the Second World War by Emanuel Ringelblum( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1994 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study written during World War II by Ringelblum, historian and archivist of the Warsaw ghetto who was killed by the Germans in 1944, published here for the first time in Polish. Surveys Polish-Jewish relations before 1939 - the antisemitic activities of right-wing parties and organizations, especially in the universities. At the outbreak of war, the fact that Poles and Jews fought side by side against the German attack tended to reduce antisemitism. However, after the installation of the Germans in Warsaw, antisemitism increased. Describes life in the ghetto, ties with Aryan parts of the town, and the conditions of Jews living outside the ghetto. Mentions both Poles who informed on Jews and cases of rescue by Poles

Kefar nidaḥ be-Eropah : Ḥelmno (Ḳulmhof) : maḥaneh ha-hashmadah ha-Natsi ha-rishon by Shmuel Krakowski( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in Hebrew and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first Nazi extermination camp was established in the village of Chełmno. It began to operate on 8 December 1941; Jews were gassed in trucks and buried in mass graves in the nearby forest. The Nazis intended to use the site to murder the ca. 420,000 Jews who lived in the Warthegau region. Based on testimonies of Jews and of Nazi war criminals, describes the extermination process at Chełmno, deportations from Łódź, and the liquidation of other ghettos in the area (listed on pp. 75-88). In fall 1942, after most of the Jews in the area had been killed, the Nazis began to remove the traces of the mass murders. In March 1943 the camp was closed, but it was reopened in April 1944, with some changes: the gassing was done in the forest and the bodies were burned in two crematoria. Based on the Łódź ghetto chronicles and other sources, describes deportations to Chełmno in June-July 1944 and the liquidation of the ghetto in August, as well as Rumkowski's cooperation with the Nazis. The few Jews who remained in Chełmno were killed in January 1945, with the approach of the Soviet army
Sovetskie evrei pishut Ilʹe Ėrenburgu, 1943-1966( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in Russian and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A selection of the letters sent by Jews from all over the USSR to Ehrenburg and of some of Ehrenburg's replies. Correspondents in 1943-45 wrote mainly about the Nazi genocide of Jews in their towns. They describe events in Odessa, in the former Jewish agricultural colonies in the Crimea and southern Ukraine, in Khmelnik, Vinkovtsy, Lugansk (Voroshilovgrad), the Mineralnye Vody area, and other places. They also complain about growing antisemitism and difficulties in restitution of the Jewish property left behind by evacuated Jews who returned to their towns. Letters of 1945-53 complain about official and popular antisemitism - distrust of Jewish survivors, lack of respect for the victims, the myth of the Jew evading the front during the war, a numerus clausus in higher education, etc. Letters of 1953-66 also complain about the impunity of antisemitic acts, discrimination against Jews, and the silence on the Jews' contribution to the Soviet economy and culture. Pp. 9-105 contain an article by Altshuler, "Erenburg i yevrei (nabrosok portreta)" ["Ehrenburg and the Jews (a Draft of a Portrait)"], which, inter alia, discusses Ehrenburg's struggle against antisemitism in the USSR; the text of his letter to Stalin protesting against the plans to deport the Soviet Jews is included
